Foundation Repair

The Foundation Supportworks Push Pier System

What It Does:

Foundation Supportworks Push Piers are made of steel and are driven deep into the soil beneath a foundation to solve settlement problems.

Push piers can be installed inside or outside your foundation walls and are not visible once the repair is complete.

In many scenarios, push piers not only stop settlement but lift the foundation back to its original position, closing cracks and improving window and door operation.

How Foundation Push Pier Systems Work

foundation-push-pier-failure-thmTo install a push pier system, soil is first removed to expose the foundation footing where the pier will be driven. A heavy-duty steel bracket is then installed below the footing.

Next, rugged, interlocking steel pier sections are hydraulically driven through the bracket until bedrock or stable soil is reached. The weight of the home is then transferred through the piers to this load-bearing soil.

Once this has been completed, your foundation contractors may attempt to lift the foundation, elevating the settled foundation back to its original position.

Once the homeowner and installing contractor are satisfied with the stabilization or amount of lift, the soil can be backfilled. The home is now permanently stabilized in its new position.

Our Push Pier System

As with any family of products, there are good, better and best. When you’re talking about investing in your home’s structural stability, it’s a good idea to go with the best.

Along with their corrosion-resistant design that includes galvanized steel and a 25-year warranty, the Foundation Supportworks Push Pier System also includes a patent-pending external sleeve that strengthens the push pier directly below the foundation bracket, which is the most critical location for added structural support.

This external sleeve will strengthen the push pier and prevent the kinking, buckling, and rotation that is commonly seen with other push pier systems.

When To Use Foundation Push Piers

Because push piers are driven all the way to bedrock or a stable soil layer, they are often the least risky solution when local soil conditions are unknown. If your goals are as follows, then push piers are the option for you:

  • You need the best opportunity to lift your home back to its original position.
  • You’d like minimal disturbance during installation.
  • You’re looking for a fast, effective installation.
  • Restoring your property value is a priority.

However, if you’re installing foundation piers on lighter structures such as stoops or decks, a solution such as a helical pier might be more effective than a push pier. This is because the structure may not be heavy enough to drive the push piers to sufficient depth to support your structure.
